Police issue warning to motorists

Police issue warning to motorists

Police issue warning to motorists HRM Partners in Policing would like to advise motorists to adjust their driving habits in light of today’s weather.

Since 8:30 a.m. police have received at least 35 reports of vehicle crashes or collisions across HRM. Treacherous driving conditions have resulted in reports of vehicles being unable to negotiate steep or sharply curving roads. Police have shut down a number of roads either to investigate a crash or due to road conditions. The closures are sporadic and temporary, and motorists may be diverted along alternate routes.

HRM Partners in Policing are reminding motorists to adjust their driving habits and be mindful of the change of road conditions throughout the day and overnight. In order to safely arrive at your destination, slow down, allow extra time for your commute and ensure you leave extra stopping distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.

Motorists are also reminded to avoid going down steep roads until they are properly salted. Pedestrians are reminded to make eye contact with drivers and wait until the vehicle comes to a complete stop before attempting to cross the road.
